Episode 6 Afterthoughts
No matter how much I enjoy the acting of Kim Hye Ja, I’m glad to see Han Ji Min even for awhile. The Light in Your Eyes gets more romance in episode 6 as Hye Ja and Joon Ha go on their dream date. That is, for Hye Ja, she’s imagining it since she came from being her elderly version.
Overall, this was a heartbreaking episode in so many ways. The elevator scene at the beginning of the episode was very painful. It made me question myself if at times I discriminated others. Because of this drama, I’ve started to be more conscious of how I treat people who are older than I am.
Obviously, Hye Ja’s dream was a clever but mean twist in this episode. Like everyone else, I’m sure we were all excited to see the young Hye Ja back. However, I feel it was necessary because the dream strengthened Hye Ja’s resolve to get back to her original body.
As a viewer, how wonderful it was to have a few minutes of just lighthearted romance. As much as I am enjoying the drama, it’s becoming a bit too heavy for me. In fact, Hyun Joo and Young Soo’s storyline has started to really gain momentum for me. I look forward to their scenes together because of how cute they are.
